McCarthy warning for Bafana
Johannesburg - Benni McCarthy has warned his Bafana Bafana team-mates not to
underestimate any of the countries they were drawn against for the 2013
Africa Cup of Nations.
South Africa head Group A following Wednesday evening's draw in Durban, with Angola, Cape Verde and Morocco completing the grid.
And while Bafana have never lost to any of those three teams
since their re-admission to the international stage, former Blackburn
and Porto striker McCarthy says he knows first-hand the threat those
national-team members can pose.
"Cape Verde has a huge immigrant base in Portugal and Holland and
most of their players play in big clubs in these countries," the
Orlando Pirates ace told the club's official website.
"I played with a lot of great players from there while I was in Portugal and I can attest that they are very good.
"As for Angola, fortunately we know them very well. I think
Manucho (Goncalves) is having a good time in Spain with Valladolid, and
they also have very good players who are doing well in Portugal."
